Nimble vCenter Plugin Update and Flash question

When updating the firmware on our arrays, will I need to unregister and register the vCenter plugin to get the latest version, or is the update automatic with the firmware update?

Also, are the latests versions Flash-free?  With browsers no longer supporting Adobe Flash at end of year, what is the resolution to using Nimble within vCenter w/o Flash?

Hi Joseph,

NimbleOS upgrades are persistent with things such as the vCenter plugin. Once you've upgraded, you may get a notification within the array UI to push new updates to vCenter - which is non-disruptive.

Nimble moved to a HTML5 only UI in NimbleOS 4.x, and offered vCenter HTML5 client plugin support as soon as VMware released it - which was NimbleOS 5.1.x: https://community.hpe.com/t5/Around-the-Storage-Block/VVols-meet-Nimble-H5-plugin/ba-p/7045172
